Me, drawn from memory by illustrator Bitna Na
Ashley Kang is my name.
I’m a recent graduate of New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where I had the wiggle room to find my lens of navigating life while working part-time as an elementary classroom assistant and volunteering as a public art docent. It was a far-from-perfect road to exploring artistic approaches to ideas of memory, space, and participation but a perfect time to ponder over tough questions, value unconventional perspectives, and realize there’s a ton to be done before I get into RCA for grad school.
Basically, I’m a hoarder of PDFs and obscurities, working toward a practice of documentary media and creative computing to enrich everyday life. I hope to meet you along the way!
Lately: looking for paid internships and entry-level roles in web development/digital product design/R&D/etc., collaborating with Color <Coded> Collective, open sourcing my data structures/algorithms/p5.js learning at CodeLab OC, researching for my Dean’s Award for Graduating Seniors project, sharing contemporary art via Rothko Toast
